Social problems such as energy shortages, resource depletion and climate change are intensifying on a global scale. Toshiba Group tackles these challenges head-on and provides countermeasures based on technology through its business activities.
The universe of cyber physical systems (CPS) is expanding. CPS interlinks the physical world of reality and tangible things, with the cyber world of digital virtual space. It collects information and data in various fields, analyzes it in cyberspace using AI and digital technologies, and then feeds it back to the physical world as information and knowledge that can easily be utilized to create added value.
At Toshiba, we are merging our experience and achievements in the physical fields of key devices and core components, cultivated over long years in the manufacturing sector, with cyber technologies centered on operations and services that utilize vast amounts of data, in order to promote the optimization of various products and systems. At the same time, we are also engineering our own “digital transformation” by utilizing IT systems to transform business processes inside Toshiba Group, and thereby build a firm position as a CPS technology company.
